Every employer in California needs legal help at some point. The laws are too complex and the penalties too severe for employers to figure it all out on their own. Even the courts and government agencies can’t decide what some of these laws mean.

So the only question for employers is whether you’re going to take preventive steps to avoid legal issues or wait for the legal issues to arise. The former course can be way less expensive, disruptive, and damaging to your reputation. With that in mind, my colleague Nancy Yaffe and I put together a list of 10 things California employers can do to protect themselves in 2015. You can access it here.

And yes, that’s the same Nancy Yaffe who was recently selected by L.A. Biz to receive one of its inaugural Women of Influence Awards. The program honors women business leaders in the LA area who stand out both for their achievements in the marketplace and their commitment to community and mentoring. Way to go Nancy!
